I'm home with a miserable head cold, so of course my thoughts turn to politics and government. Both give me equal pressure in my head. I started to muse on what "government" should be, so here are my thoughts;
Government should be a force for good in every citizen's life.
Government's main focus should be making sure everyone gets a fair shot, meaning all citizens get at the very least adequate food, shelter, basic education, and healthcare.
Government should be a protecting force; it should have a powerful say over use of natural resources, pollutants, exploitation of the poor etc.
Government should never be in the business of propping up private corporations.
Government should always break up monopolies.
Government and it's use of our tax money should be transparent as hell.
Government should be a fairly constant rollover of citizens serving in leadership rolls.
Government at the state level should have a much great influence over our daily lives. What works in Minnesota isn't going to work for Arizona.
What would you add?
